This flight leaves our heliport (the only DOT approved and FAA recognized heliport in the Keystone Area) and follows Buckeye Gulch down to the old mining town of Keystone, past the mines to Iron Mountain and the infamous pig-tail bridges and back. After Iron Mountain, this flight continues up Grizzly Bear Creek into the Black Elk Wilderness, just east of the Cathedral Spires and below Black Elk Peak. After Black Elk Peak, we continue following the remote, majestic wilderness boundary into Sunday Gulch past the iconic Outlets at Sylvan Lake. From the lake the flight heads east along the Needles’ Highway (SD HWY 87) past the Needle’s Eye, Old November Gold Mine and the Cathedral Spires, we then head northeast back to the heliport with break taking views; an unforgettable flight and our staff’s recommended flight if you’ve already seen Crazy Horse.
